    If the engineer inside you is toying to work on some noteworthy object over the weekend, or you simply want to buy an out-of-the-ordinary gift for your smart teen, then Vaccum Engine Car is the thing. Japanese hobby kit maker, Gakken, is out with a set that allows you to build your own vacuum car engine. Of course for $210, you cannot get a real hybrid car to zoom off in an eco-friendly style, but certainly a DIY eco-toy-car for green playtime. Sporting an aluminum body, iron shaft, brass valves, plastic steering wheel and a seat too, this vehicle feeds on alcohol fuel. It boasts of a real eternal combustion engine that takes about two hours to assemble without any special tools. Simply hit the gear and watch it go! Don’t miss the video after the jump…….
